Whenever Luci Knepper of Salem, Ohio takes this colorful salad to a ladies luncheon, she gets compliments. "Even my son loves this...and he doesn't care for either cheese or sour cream. The apples add interest and a little crunch...and you can easily substitute cooked chicken for the turkey," she suggests.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (3 ounces) ramen noodles
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed apples
  • 1-1/4 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 cup fat-free poppy seed salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  1. Remove seasoning packet from ramen noodles and discard or save for another use. Prepare noodles according to package directions. Drain an rinse in cold water.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the noodles, apples, turkey, cheese, peas, green onions and red pepper. In a small bowl, combine the dressing, sour cream and salt. Stir into noodle mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
